This is a REALLY good video to watch. We'll ignore the fact that at the end, it said that we need "to take e-learning serious" instead of "take e-learning seriousLY". Their editor/tech writer flubbed that one! We'll forgive them for that...the message is still clear. E-learning and m-learning is growing! (Let more of us in to help, like me!)

The History 2.0 Classroom: Back to School App-pack

The History 2.0 Classroom: Back to School App-pack | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

"The summer is quickly winding down & a number of teachers will be returning to their classroom with new mobile devices (iPads). Throughout the summer I have been conducting workshops on iPad integration with EdTechTeacher and I thought it might be helpful to pull together a back to school list of apps structured around specific classroom goals. While many schools may already have an Apple VPP program already in place, I know a number of teachers will also be purchasing the apps themselves. Therefore, I will do my best to include both a pay & free app for each objective."


I really like the tool choices on here. I have most of them already!

Why Should Techies Care About Education Theory?

Why Should Techies Care About Education Theory? | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

Debates about education are by no means new: What’s the best way to teach? What’s the best way to learn? What should the curriculum be? Who should have access to specialized knowledge and specialized training? How does technology impact all of these questions?

 

As a recently graduated academian, I've learned to appreciate theory and practices a little bit. When I studied hypertext theory, little did I know that I'd actually be preaching it to a manager about how the logic of a particular website wasn't working. We don't all have to know all of educational theory, but to be responsible educators, we should at least have some inkling of what it's about and how it affects learners.

Daphne Koller: What we're learning from online education | Video on TED.com

TED Talks Daphne Koller is enticing top universities to put their most intriguing courses online for free -- not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn.

 

This TED talk does a good job of explaining some of the latest trends and innovations in education, specially around the big name universities offering free online courses. I like the way she tackles the issues with marking humanities in a scalable manner ... note that the beginning is a little slow, after about 5 minutes you can see where her passions are.

Opinion: Technology is a tool, not silver bullet, to bridge Latino education gap

Opinion: Technology is a tool, not silver bullet, to bridge Latino education gap | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

"When it comes to education, in spite of some refreshing news lately, Latino youth present a well documented and very troubling picture. On average, Hispanic students tend to perform far below their peers, have the highest dropout rates, and have the lowest college completion rates. This disheartening fact has enormous consequences for our community and the country, in a world that demands more and more education, particularly in technology and science-related fields."

The 10 Biggest Breakthroughs in the Science of Learning | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

Scientists have been making some major breakthroughs that have gone a long way in explaining both how the brain functions and how we use it to organize, recall, and acquire new information.


 I still don't agree with the idea that there are no "learning styles", but all the rest of this makes a whole lot of sense! I've seen it in myself as a student, as well as seeing it in my Aspie son as well. As mobile become more prolific, I hope that more educators take all this into consideration!

What’s the big deal about Blogging?

What’s the big deal about Blogging? | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

A writer’s work will quickly improve with a real audience. Writing for an audience of only one is a tedious process. This is the preferred method in education. The writer needs to wait for the composition to be graded. Of course the student writer can always shake off the teacher’s criticism; because the writer is convinced the teacher hates him anyway. With comments from a real audience providing proper feedback, the writer gets a better sense of impact on the audience as well as recognition for accuracy and focus.

Gaming Gains Respect

Gaming Gains Respect | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

As the world becomes more and more driven by mobile apps and tablet technologies, the games that kids are playing at home (and a variety of others) are slowly but surely making their way into classrooms across the world. Computing power and graphics are making games much more engaging. If what most observers say is true, we’re at the beginning of a serious shift in the way we think about and employ video games and simulations in learning situations. Students will learn not just the content of the traditional curriculum, but, more importantly, the skills and learning dispositions they need to create, to solve problems, and to collaborate throughout their lives.

Why Schools Should Help Students Find Their Passion - Education - GOOD | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it
We don't need another generation of workers simply enduring their lives.

 

Great article brought to my attention by the great @jackiegerstein. 

 

This is not a new problem. I remember being a university student 25 years ago this being a problem even then. My parents were pushing me to take business courses when I didn't have an aptitude for it, and had a better aptitude for the humanities. I couldn't even take a basic marketing course unless I took an accounting course, and even with tutoring I passed with a D in accounting.  It wasn't until many years later that I found something that combined my love of humanities and social sciences with technology in a way that worked for me. I just wish I had found it sooner-- I already feel I'm behind professionally! Hopefully now that technology is at a point where content is starting to become more relevant, humanities and social science majors will have more professional outlets for the fields that they love.

This is a really good article that @SHIFTelearning on Twitter brought to my attention. It's a good follow up to my previous post earlier this week, "What Are You So Afraid Of?" (http://wp.me/p2hiSW-9C).  Higher Ed needs to get on board-- they need to be the driving force to help the rest of us get prepared for the future!
